Once upon a time
A couple of weeks ago
I stumbled across the strange idea:
«Wolfram's one-dimensional cellular automata
can be mapped to
a finite Peano curve.»
Peano curve, which is more known as Hilbert curve, actually.»
(but Peano did the same discovery one year earlier).»
is simple: one can take each
line from the left image
one-dimensional generation of automata
curl it to make the right image.
curl it up
recursively curl it
to the two-dimensional grid using Hilbert curve mapping.
Further, one can
run the time
animate generations step by step
and, since such mapping preserves locality fairly well,
has a chance to catch
The four colors scheme
For deeper detailing, the four colors scheme
used at the Peano canvas:
the color of each cell is computed based on its current and previous states.
the white color means cells, that died a long time ago; the light gray -- just passed away, the dark gray -- newborn ones and black -- confidently alive.
Credits & tech details
At the moment when I decided to build a js-prototype,
this simple plan
such a simple plan
outburst to the
huge time-wasteful project:
I realised that
I didn't mess with the client-side for too long.
the last time I did some client-side development was more than ten years ago.
So I decided to
renew my skills
update my knowledge of today's html, js, browsers and such stuff
and tried to use
some suitable interesting
libraries, concepts and ideas
I heard of.
This project involves:
Among others this project involves:
The current code was tested under
several browsers (Windows versions).
some Chromium-based browsers
some Chromium-based browsers (latest Google Chrome and latest Yandex Browser)
— Windows versions.
No MSIE support at all. Sorry, folks.
